Emma Raducanu gifted £180k worth of luxury cars after tennis sensation signs up as Porsche ambassador
TENNIS ace Emma Raducanu is set for her next big rally after being gifted £180,000 worth of luxury cars.
The reigning US Open champ, 19, smiled as she took a £150,000 911 GT3 white Porsche out for a top spin.
She was also pictured with a £27,000 classic 911 Carrera 3.2.
It comes after she signed up as an ambassador for the sports car manufacturer.
Raducanu, from Bromley, South East London, said: “Porsche has always been in my head.
“It is one of the brands that I’ve loved from a young age.
“One of my coaches had a 911 Targa. Yeah, cool coach. Whenever I would see him I would be like dreaming of one day sitting in my own.
“It’s important for me to align with partners and brands that I really feel passionate about and that I identify with.
“And I feel like because motorsports has always been a part of me, I think this partnership with Porsche is incredible.”
Emma was described as a massive petrolhead who had a dabble at karting and motocross as a kid.
Porsche chief Oliver Blume said: “Emma is an inspiration and role model beyond the realms of her sport for young women all over the world.”
The Porsche 911 GT3 costs £132k and has a top speed of 198mph with a 510horsepower.
It can also get from 0 to 62mph in 3.4 seconds with its 4litre, six-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine.
This month Emma Raducanu was listed in The Sun’s Fabulous magazine’s 25 most inspirational women for International Women’s Day.
She made tennis history last September, winning both the US Open and a legion of devoted fans.
The youngest Grand Slam champion in 17 years sat her A levels just months before her stunning victory and is tipped to earn a £100million fortune from sponsorship deals alone.
She also has a Vogue shoot and an MBE under her belt, as well as global brands lining up to work with her.
